Rock Island County AOK Partners

The Rock Island County All Our Kids Early Childhood Network is a community-based collaboration that consists of partners who share a common interest in supporting families with young children to get the best start in life. Knowing that individual program efforts are not enough, AOK Network partners work together to connect and coordinate services as they address current child and family priorities. AOK Network partners are those agencies who have made a commitment  to being collaborative partners in achieving the goals and vision of the Network. 
 

In the Rock Island County AOK Network there are two levels of partnership:  Network Supporter and Network Partner are asked to select the level of partnership they wish to have within the Network.
